International Wine Cellar | Rating: 87($45) Good full red. Reduced aromas of black raspberry, cherry and herbs. Offers a silky, pliant texture, with moderately concentrated flavors of candied red fruits and herbs. The tannins are fairly light, but the finish is nonetheless a bit rough, with a touch of herbal dryness.Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: March/April 2004
Rating: 90This also exhibits buckets of Gevrey character with reserved, understated, moderately tannic flavors and a rustic, intense, sappy finish. This is no model of finesse but it packs plenty of flavor authority and mid-palate punch. Excellent quality here.Issue: 1st Quarter, 2003

Burgundy is home to some of the greatest and most expensive wines in the world. Stretching from Auxerre in the north to Lyon in the south, the region's most famous section is the limestone-rich Côte d'Or. Vineyards in Burgundy are classified according to their locations on the hillsides. Only 2% of total production is from grand cru sites, while premier cru and village-level wines are more common. It is rare for one domaine to own an entire vineyard; rather the land has been divided down to individual rows, in some cases as a result of inheritance laws. While other varieties can be found in Burgundy, and reign supreme. The best examples are capable of aging for 15 years or more, a rarity for these two varieties, making them highly valuable.
